August 26, 2019

The Immigration Loans Program (ILP) provides eligible immigrants, who are mainly refugees selected for resettlement to Canada, with access to funding that would otherwise not be available to them. Loans are used to cover a number of expenses, including travel to Canada and other costs associated with resettlement.

The updated instructions include new payment and collection information, per the amended ILP regulations; changes to the transportation loan process; updates to assessing the need for and the ability to repay a loan, including counselling for loan applicants; and a new process for requesting Resettlement Assistance Program (RAP) contributions from within Canada for transportation loans as well as assistance loans.
